LSU, Who or Alabama In BCS Championship Game?
Written by 

BCSNow that LSU has thumped No. 3-rankd Arkansas and No. 2 Alabama thrashed Auburn, a rematch of the Tigers-Tide defensive battle is all but set regardless of what takes place next weekend.

While that rematch -- which could pit a team that didn't win its conference vs. a team that didn't win its conference or division, if LSU drops Georgia in the SEC Championship Game to remain No. 1 in the BCS standings, which team should the Tigers face in the title game? Should it be Alabama, which already got its shot at the Tigers -- on its home field no less -- and came away with its only loss of the season?

What about other one-loss teams like No. 4 Stanford, No. 5 Oklahoma State (if it beats Oklahoma next weekend), No. 6 Virginia Tech or No..7 Boise State (if it can beat 1-10 New Mexico)? Then here's No. 8 Houston, which along with LSU is the only 12-0 team in the country. If they can beat Southern Miss in the Conference USA championship game next Saturday afternoon, should they get a crack at the Tigers?

The way it looks to  me, LSU and Alabama look to be the two best teams in the country. Regardless of my opinion, what's yours? Which team do you have playing LSU in the title game if it maintains its stranglehold on the top spot in the BCS standings? Feel free to blast away in the comments section, below...

#Hokies are No. 4 in the Harris Poll and No. 3 in the coaches poll. Those make up 2/3 of BCS standings.

Many of fans crying about BCS system just can't handle truth that SEC clearly has the 2 best teams. Some people need Kleenex and a binkie.

RT @NotJerryTipton: Louisville FB gets a couple of Top 25 votes? Well then, I stand corrected. They're worthy of a BCS bowl bid after all.
It's "you're." Idiot. WE @BobbyAtkinson@WarBlogle Are you completely ignorant of how the BCS works? Your an idiot.

If UConn can knock Kentucky out of the NCAA Tournament and send us to the BCS in one year, I think we can put the Larry Taylor thing to bed.

Another hellishly boring #LSU-Alabama game in the BCS title game? It's like making a sequel of J. Edgar. Can you get a Red Bull i.v.?

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
